These are very good oven fries, the best that we have made.
2 1/2 pounds russet or other baking potatoes (not peeled)
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
1. Line a baking sheet with foil or use a crisper and spray the crisper. If using a baking sheet, spray the foil well with a mister. (Because of the sugar, these fries will stick. Grease well.)
2. Cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch thick fries.
3. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, salt, and pepper. Toss the potatoes in the mixture. Spread on the baking sheet or crisper in one layer.
4. Bake for 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and browned. Serve immediately.
